Fisher Architecture has been working with University of Maryland Medical System since 2018 on the expansion of their Orthopedic Center at 520 Idlewild Drive in Easton, Maryland. Phase two is currently underway with the beginning of shell construction on the facility’s two-story addition. The building ‘shell’ phase of the project included the coordination of an elevator lobby, egress stairs, and core utilities like water, sprinklers, tele/data, electrical, mechanical, and elevator machine rooms.
The new construction will have a hipped and a-frame metal roof where each side slopes downwards toward the walls and functional louvers designed to provide additional ventilation. The addition design merges with the standing structure through its brick detailing and a similar exterior insulation and finish system. The Fisher Architecture team is looking forward to the project completion in 2021.
